The Department of Energy has awarded $25M in federal funds to 16 projects that aim to increase the efficiency and safety of the country's natural gas infrastructure.
DOE said Friday awardees will develop methods and platforms to facilitate collection, storage and production of natural gas products through the cost-shared efforts.
The National Energy Technology Laboratory will oversee the projects aimed at creating systems to detect methane, cut emissions from the transportation sector and convert flare gas into various products.
“This Administration is committed to providing cost-effective, responsible technologies to advance natural gas operations across the United States,” said Dan Brouillette, secretary at DOE.
